Life with Charlie Crews Redux

As they are starting to film Billions Season 5 next week, Damian will mostly just be himself in the coming days, spending the weeks working in New York and jetting back to London on his off days to be with the family. So why not revisit a character that Damian has said is the one role that was most like him in real life? The thinking man with a sunny disposition: Charlie Crews. Here’s my visit with Life.

I would love to take us all today to a special Harvest service,Ā organized by British Food Fortnight to rekindle the tradition of Harvest Festival, at the Westminster Abbey in 2013, an event that Damian Lewis does not only attend with family — as a foodie, I cannot think of anything better thanĀ celebrating food with family, no wonder Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday! —Ā  Ā but also actively participates in the celebrations and has a conversation with theĀ Duchess of Cornwall, who is also in attendance, about the whereabouts of one certain Nicholas Brody! šŸ˜€ Continue reading “Throwback Thursday to Damian Lewis at Harvest Festival 2013”

Throwback Thursday to Damian Lewis and Helen McCrory
at Cheltenham Literature Festival

Damian loves and supports poetry and so do we! One poetry project he has actively supportedĀ is TheĀ Love Book,Ā a brilliant collection of classic and contemporary love poems that vary from Shakespeare to E.E. Cummings to Maya Angelou comingĀ together in a bookĀ as well as in an app. And it is my utmost pleasure to take us all back to The Love Book event I was extremely lucky to attendĀ at Cheltenham Literature Festival on October 12, 2014, five years ago: Damian Lewis and Helen McCrory read Great Love Poems.

Whaaaa? Five years ago?!?!?! It feels like yesterday!

From Festivals to Sports to Theatre: We Know What Damian Lewis Did This Summer!

Happy Labor Day! I am hoping most of you have had the chance to make that last beach trip before the summer ends while I have been sitting at my desk writing about Damian’s summer, the third in a row he has enjoyed fully!

Damian constantly worked all summers between 2011 while he was shooting Homeland to 2016 when they were starting the Billions shoot in summer. So, when asked by a fan at The Goat stage door back in May 2017 about what he would be doing between The Goat and Billions,Ā whose shoot would not start until September, he responded promptly:

I am going to have a summer.

Happy Birthday, Helen McCrory! TOP DOZEN Reasons to Love Her

“Actually, I’m looking forward to being 50, because to me that’s when a woman is at the pinnacle of her femininity and her womanhood.” —Helen McCrory in an interview with The Independent

Thanks to recent interviews with Helen in The Telegraph and The Times, we have found out about her 50th birthday celebrations!

“He (Damian) took me to the Wallace Collection. He got the gentleman in charge to give us a tour, which was my idea of heaven. Then we went to a hotel that will remain nameless, then home.

When I came down to dinner, my whole family were there and a load of friends. Damian is very good at throwing surprise parties. And because I always dress up, I just happened to have on a 1920s backless blue velvet evening gown with a pair of old Fila trainers.”

So, Damian, we do not know if you are throwing another surprise party for 51, but here we are throwing a birthday party for your better half on the blog. Continue reading “Happy Birthday, Helen McCrory! TOP DOZEN Reasons to Love Her”
